Closing down

It has been some time since I posted in this space So, for a number of reasons, I have decided to close down this particular blog.  I did intend to use it to participate in various photo memes and carnivals, but I just haven't been able to make the time.  Taking the photo is not the problem - I am never without the camera.  I just found I was using up all my computer time visiting the other participants - an important part of any meme, and i felt I was not giving this the attention is deserved..  I have to say that I have encountered so many lovely people and inspiring blogs through the lens and keyboard  - thank you all for your support and encouragement.
I am very busy right now with - oh - so many things.  I can still be found blogging on family, life and our new croft at:
You are very welcome to join me there.

Skywatch - Coming in

An unusual sight in our skies lately, due to the volcanic ash cloud grounding most of the UK flights. This one did make it into Edinburgh Airport.
See how the skies of the world are looking this week at Skywatch Friday.

Ruby Tuesday - Leaving Harris.

As we waited for the ferry to take us back over to Skye and then on to the mainland, last week,  I took a couple of snaps around the small harbour.  I liked the splashes of red in these shots (even though the bottom one is a bit squint!), so I thought I would use them for my first Ruby Tuesday post.

Quite a few suits worth piled up in there mind you!  Do visit Ruby Tuesday to see more red.

Today's Flowers - Magnolia

Magnolia Stellata is blooming beautifully in our garden just now.  A treat for the eyes as the daffodils fade and the early summer flowers are yet to show.

Share in this worldwide bouquet at Today's Flowers.  Thank you to the team who bring us this beauty each week.

Shadow Shot Sunday - The Beach

James running down the sand at Horgabost, Isle of Harris.  It was our first beach of the year - can you tell?

See the world's shadows this week with Tracey at Shadow Shot Sunday.
